We asked Gina Biggs to take part in and creatively respond to the last Unlimited Connects Wales event in the series – Into the Future (in Welsh here), funded by Arts Council Wales and the National Lottery. Here is Gina’s biog and her beautiful and thought-provoking creative response…
Gina defines as a queer and disabled researcher, performer and theatre maker based in Penarth (Wales) who manages a chronic pain condition that also presents mental health challenges. She makes site-responsive work through her company SheWolf which explores the interconnections between landscape, body, and voice. This work aims to bring the hidden narratives of landscape alive in the imagination of the public. Her landscape-informed practice emerges directly out of the self-care she needs to manage her condition in that cultivating a connection to nature is consistently evidenced to improve physical and mental wellbeing.
There are four video versions of her creative response:
- one in English without voice over
- one in Welsh without captions
- one in English with captions and a voice over/ reading the text on the screen
- one in Welsh and with captions.
Plus, click here for a written script that includes a description of all the images.
So settle back, breathe in deeply, and transport yourself to the Welsh coast to reconnect yourself with yourself, the event and the future of the arts in Wales.
